The latest stunning Limited Edition from Cohiba has been the most eagerly anticipated cigar in years for many people and follows the phenomenal success of Cohiba’s previous Limited Editions, including the 2004 Sublimes, the 2011 1966 and the most recent, Robusto Supremos from 2014.
The Talismán is classified as Medium to Full (using the Linea Clásica blend) but has a deceptively light touch, delivering a rich and nuanced smoke of exceptional balance without ever overwhelming the smoker.
All the tobaccos used in a Limited Edition cigar are aged for at least two years. However, in addition to this the Seco and Ligero leaf in Cohiba cigars undergo an ‘extra fermentation’. This may last as long as eighteen months and is conducted at the factory in cedar barrels. Cohibas are the only Cuban cigars to undergo this process and it provides all of their cigars with a unique smoothness. The maduro wrapper leaf that has been used to dress this cigar provides just a touch of sweetness that plays across the top of the palate.
